Clearwater, Florida - Double Barrel Surf & Skate Shop

Clearwater, Florida - Double Barrel Surf & Skate Shop - Front
Just a little bit inland from the beach, you will find the surf and skate shop called Double Barrel Surf & Skate. Pretty cool looking place. Really wild looking board in the front window. Everything you need, evidently, to skate, surf, or skim while living large in Clearwater, Florida. Perhaps your vacation will include some skim-boarding? Or just some skate boarding? Stop in, check it out, see what kind of trouble you can get into!

Clearwater Florida - Kayaking Tampa Bay

Clearwater Florida - Kayaking Tampa Bay
No, it is definitely not the best photograph I ever took. But I want you to be able to picture yourself enjoying the warm sunny weather of the Tampa Bay Area. Whether you are here on vacation, or thinking of relocation, or a local, you can appreciate the beauty of Tampa Bay.

In this picture, I am kayaking in Tampa Bay, just off Cleawater, Florida. The water is very clear, you can easily see the bottom in the shallows where I am paddling. Ahead on the old tree, when you click to enlarge the photo, you can see an Osprey. They are beautiful birds, and it is amazing to watch them dive from the sky and capture fish in their talons.

Clearwater Florida - AAU Baseball Tournament

Clearwater Florida - AAU Baseball Tournament
I was getting some pictures of Clearwater's Brighthouse Field recently, when I noticed some activity in the baseball field next door. I thought maybe it was some pre-spring Phillies Spring Training action. So, camera in hand, I went over to see what was going on. It was an AAU Baseball event. How cool. So I checked in with a knowledgeable seeming person near the gate, and got the go-ahead to take some photos.

If you click on the photo to enlarge it, you can see the ball is just about in front of his belt buckle. I hadn't realized I got it caught so well as that! I kind of like that myself.

If you are somewhere snowy right now, thinking about a Florida vacation, or perhaps even relocating to Clearwater... this is why! And if you need more incentive, check out Clearwater Beach Daily Photo and Dunedin Daily Photo.

Famous Hot Cuban Deli - Best Cubans In Clearwater

Famous Hot Cuban Deli - Best Cubans In Clearwater

This little, unassuming deli, just across from the St. Petersburg - Clearwater International Airport, is reputed to have the best Cuban sandwiches in Clearwater! Now, I am not a big fan of Cuban sandwiches, but I have had one of their Cubans, and it was really good. So what can I say? Stop by and check it out for yourself.

Clearwater Florida - Waterfront View of Clearwater Beach, Sand Key, Bridges

Clearwater Florida - Waterfront View of Clearwater Beach, Sand Key, BridgesThis is the view from the waterfront in Clearwater, Florida, just down the street from Morton Plant Hospital. Yeah, nice view isn't it! This view looks across Clearwater Harbor towards the Sand Key Bridge, which spans Clearwater Pass. The bridge to the far right is the Clearwater Memorial Causeway Bridge. It takes us from mainland Clearwater over to Clearwater Beach. With that beautiful sky, it's hard to believe that this shot was taken just a week before December!

Click on the photo to see a bigger version. Click on the linked / highlighted words for a more fully textured experience. :D

Oh, and hey, have you bookmarked this page yet? You might want to think about it, because it will occur to you tomorrow that there is something new here, and you will want to be able to find your way back and see it! Thanks!

Clearwater Florida - Episcopal Church of the Ascension Carillon Tower

Clearwater Florida - Episcopal Church of the Ascension Bell Tower
With a tip of my hat to 'The Reason For The Season' I present a photo of the carillon tower of the Episcopal Church of the Ascension in Clearwater, Florida. It is a beautiful carillon tower that provides a wonderful view as well as a beautiful sound.

Needless to say, this is a time of year with a calendar full of events and programs to celebrate the season. If you would like to learn more about the church, click here. The picture below is from the front of the church. On their website there is a link to a pdf file with lots more pictures and information about the church. If you would like to view this pdf file, click here.

St. Petersburg - Clearwater International Airport

St. Petersburg - Clearwater International Airport
Although not a big player in commercial passenger traffic, the St. Petersburg - Clearwater International Airport, located in Clearwater, Florida, is a significant regional asset. Besides handling UPS and Airborne Express flights, it is also, according to Wikipedia, "home to the busiest U.S. Coast Guard Air Station in the world". The Wiki entry has a lot of neat information, as does the iFly website.

If you are visiting this area, whether for a getaway, a wedding, or for Spring Break or Spring Training (Toronto Blue Jays in Dunedin, or Philadelphia Phillies in Clearwater, or the New York Yankees in Tampa), it could be you might get a great flight on one of the newer carriers who are flying directly into St. Petersburg - Clearwater International Airport. When you start booking your flights, check for PIE, that's the official designation of this airport. Who knows, it might be a better rate, and a more convenient landing point. Then you get to start your vacation that much quicker once you are on the ground!
